Once again, China steps up to help Lebanon fight the coronavirus spread while its own country is battling the worst since the onset of this outbreak.
On Thursday afternoon, Chinese Ambassador to Lebanon, Wang Kejian, posted on his personal social pages that two human temperature measuring equipment has been deployed in Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.
The screening equipment is a donation from Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co. to confront the new Coronavirus. The Ambassador added that this equipment takes the passengers’ temperatures without contact.
“We will continue to do our best to prevent and control the epidemic in our country, and China is confident in its capacity to defeat the epidemic very soon,” the ambassador said during his meeting with President Michel Aoun in Beirut, according to Xinhua media.
Ambassador Wang noted that there is constructive cooperation between Lebanon and China to contain this disease, through daily consultations between the Chinese Embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Ministry of Health.
Despite fighting their own fierce battle against COVID-19, the Chinese didn’t hesitate in donating earlier hundreds of medical supplies to Lebanon.
These supports from friendly countries are most welcome by Lebanon that has been already undergoing severe economic and financial crises for a long while now.
Moreover, this global outbreak concerns every country and mutual support among all nations is crucial to overcome it.
Lebanon needs all the medical help it can get as its governmental hospitals have been lacking updated equipment and medical supplies, especially Rafik Hariri University Hospital (RHUH), the leading hospital in this national fight.
